Rawad Raidan

Rawad Raidan spent much of his life in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf. He is currently one of the co-hosts of Abu Dhabi Writers Cafe and has performed on various spoken word platforms including Rooftop Rhythms, Manarat Al Saadiyat, Kave, Press Paus; Play Poetry with Danabelle Gutierrez, and Emirates Literature Foundation's own Ramadan Nights Open Mic. He writes creative non-fiction using a prose-writer's ink, borrowing generously from the visual, imagined, and sensory. The threads of being in a place and belonging intertwine and weave a unique cartography of meaning, rooting, and relating between his internal landscapes and those without. His spoken word and poetry grow from the same soil. He likes to play in the space between words, as one walks on sand, occasionally picking shells.
